Heard on sportscenter that Jose Cruz Jr. was traded to Boston from Arizona. Possible replacement for Man Ram?

He's there to split time with Gabe Kapler in the OF while Trot Nixon is on the Disabled List. Not a ManRam repacement, just a fourth OF.

Echoing what others have said: Yeah, he's Jay Payton's replacement, not Manny's.

Remember when the Red Sox and Yankees used to bring in the big names in baseball? So far this year, the two East Coast empires have reeled in:

Boston Red Sox:
Jose Cruz Jr.
Alex Cora
Tony Graffanino
Chad Bradford
Adam Hyzdu
Gabe Kapler
John Olerud

New York Yankees:
Shawn Chacon
Hideo Nomo
Tim Redding
Darrell May
Al Leiter

Yuck. :o: :?:

Half of the players Boston got, people on this board were clammoring for all season :tongue:

Interesting trade deadline so far. I keep waiting for a "big" move for anyone.

That's what happens when you have few ML ready or near ML ready prospects to trade. Frankly, we don't have that many ourselves.

I really think this says more for the trade market and available major league talent, than it does for the respective teams.
